Shirley West Remembered

One year ago yesterday, Graeagle lost a beloved community leader and friend. Shirley West was the matriarch of Graeagle. With her husband Harvey she was invaluable to the growth of the community. She pioneered community programs and events, and was known for her role in local politics as the Republican Central Committee Chair and creator/editor/writer of the Pow Wow, the local Greagle newsletter.

Shirley was also known for her generous heart and love of children. Always involved and organizing school events, Shirley and Harvey took in several foster and foreign exchange students.

Graeagle remembers and honors Shirley M. West.
